Never have the stag party too close to the wedding, did the Hangover teach you nothing?

A 28-year-old man plus five of his mates thought it would be a great idea to drive rented supercars through the centre of Manchester on the eve of the wedding. It wasn’t.

Police were called to a fight but on arrival the six men leapt into their hired motors, which included a Lamborghini Gallardo, two Audi R8s and two AMG Mercedes, and sped away.

Officers gave chase for roughly three miles, but after heading from the city towards Oldham one car attempted to ram a police car, this was followed by six arrests and the recovery of three vehicles.

The men were bailed, but by then the wedding plans were well and truly out of the window. Greater Manchester Police took to twitter to really rub salt in the wound.

The array of charges against the bailed men include suspicion of assault, dangerous driving, driving while under the influence of drink and/or drugs, possession of cannabis, and possession of cocaine.

I don’t think the father of the bride covers second attempts or insurance on written off sports cars, so this fella may be up shit creek without a paddle.
